[Infographic] Taming Big Data from Wikibon

Opening with a Big Data market forecast, to ending with a shout-out for all industries to embrace Big Data as the definitive source of competitive advantage, the following infographic from Wikibon personifies Big Data as a beast (data volumes are growing exponentially) that can be tamed (thanks to new approaches for processing, storing and analyzing).  It includes real-world Big Data use cases, which I appreciated. I was most amazed by how “decoding the human genome used to take ten years, but can now be done in 7 days.”

The quote from Kevin Weil, the Director of Product for Revenue at Twitter brings the benefit of valuable Big Data insights home: “It’s no longer hard to find the answer to a given question; the hard part is finding the right question and as questions evolve, we gain better insight into our ecosystem and our business.”
